The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors. Since our founding by Clara Barton in 1881, the Red Cross has been the nation’s premier emergency response organization. Our core mission is to provide relief to victims of disaster and to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. Over the years, we have expanded our services, always with the aim of preventing and relieving suffering. In addition to aiding victims of disasters — whether fires or floods, hurricanes or tornadoes, winter storms or wildfires — the Red Cross also:
- Educates children and adults about personal safety and disaster prevention.
- Teaches lifesaving skills, such as CPR.
- Collects and distributes blood.
- Provides comfort and a critical communications link to military members and their families.
Carle’s Center for Rural Health and Farm Safety promotes agricultural health and safety to our rural neighbors and helps prepare pre-hospital and emergency medicine providers to respond quickly and effectively to farming incidents and injuries. Farmers can also participate in the Center’s Emergency Action Tube program. Once data collection is completed, this tube is maintained on the farm to provide valuable information to first responders. Visit the Center’s web site for more information.
According to the National Children’s Center, more than 100 youth and adolescents are killed and another 23,000 injured every year on farms and ranches in the United States. Through your financial donation and membership to Farm Safety 4 Just Kids, we are able to develop and disseminate farm safety resources and programs. As a member, you will enjoy our newsletter and discounted pricing on our resources. Most importantly, you will be preserving a way of life in rural North America.
The merger of Safe Kids and the Home Safety Council was completed in January of 2011. It brings together top experts in public health and safety with a common goal of preventing accidental injuries to children. The merger builds on the more than 40 years of combined experience of the two organizations in providing education and advocacy for preventing unintentional injuries, a leading cause of childhood deaths. Under the Safe Kids Worldwide name, the organization is solely dedicated to the prevention of accidental injuries to children ages 0-14. Most Home Safety Council programs will consolidate within the Safe Kids USA organization.
Loss Control Specialists, Inc. (LCS) is located in Iowa City, Iowa. President and Founder of LCS, Jim Riggert, began his career in 1978 working in property claims adjusting. Recognizing that many insurance claims and losses are preventable with proper protection, Jim founded LCS in 1986.
LCS has teamed up with major manufacturers and distributors to provide quality loss control products at cost effective prices. Initially LCS provided lightning and surge protection products. Due to client interest, however, the business has expanded to include fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and other fire safety items.
The Agricultural Safety and Health program seeks to provide research-based information and resources that assist individuals and organizations in the understanding and prevention of injury and illness while working in and around Illinois agriculture
